When travelling I like to keep things as casual as humanly possible.
Bare feet, wild beach hair, no makeup, and as few clothes as company will allow. Thankfully the chap feels the same way. Together we make the perfect pair of beach bums.
But One&Only planned a rather special supper for us, so we made an exception.
And I have to say it felt pretty lovely to get all spruced up… and seeing as we were in paradise? I got to keep my feet bare, and wriggling in the sand.

The star scattered print makes you feel as though you’re enrobed in the galaxies themselves.
It seemed only fitting to pair it with a Constellation Necklace.
An embroidered clutch, and Trinity Bangles.
For the first part of our starlit evening, we boarded a boat and headed out to a tiny, deserted island to watch the sun set.
The most spectacular spot, to watch the best sunset of our trip.
^ Take my strong hand!
We paddled in the cool, indigo sea, danced on the shore and bathed in the dwindling golden light.
Of course, you know me.
I would never be marooned without provisions!
We watched as the sky changed into every shade imaginable.
And imagined the sun making the hisss of a hot pan as it dunked into the sea.
We floated back across the velvet sea.
Marvelling at the view as we went.
The stars came out with the bats, which swooped overhead as we came into shore.
We were guided down to our own private cove, with a table set for two.
We dined beneath the light of the full moon, and I don’t know if I’ve ever felt quite so swept off my feet!
When we got back to the room, the bathroom had been turned into a little love nest.
Candles everywhere, a bath swimming with scented oils, salts and orchids.
The most magical evening I can remember. And I still can’t help but think of The Owl & The Pussycat!
“And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.”
